Jill & Justin | Twin Cities wedding photography

For my last wedding of 2009, it was a full day of wedding coverage. From the salon in Woodbury, to a straight blade shave in downtown St. Paul, to the wedding in Buffalo and the reception in Maple Grove. Not to mention that it was a beautiful November day with temps in the mid-sixties. Wonderful friends & family to share the day with. Everything seemed to work out perfectly for Jill & Justin’s wedding.

I started at Salon Ultimo in Woodbury to get photos of Jill & her bridesmaids getting their hair & makeup. It is truly a process to see a woman become a bride on her wedding day. Such intricate little details. These details can take time. In all, it is all worthwhile for one of the biggest moments of one’s life.

Some images from the salon…

Michaela & Tim wedding engagement photographer | downtown St. Paul, Minnesota

January 10th, 2009 – I was excited to get back out and shoot on Saturday, especially since I don’t shoot too much in the winter. But after last weekend’s wedding, it stirred up the urge to shoot some more. After a few emails with Michaela, we set a date, found a meeting place and crossed my fingers we didn’t have a blizzard or another ice storm! The sun was out, but you have to remember it is January…

…in Minnesota. It was around 15-20 degrees with a pretty chilly wind. It was cold.

Not your ideal weather & temperatures for outdoor pictures, but Michaela and Tim were troopers!! We had a great time! Holding each other close, they kept each other warm, like to people in love should do anyways. Spending that time together really showed me the love they have for each other. A lot can be said when you see a woman smile so much when she’s around her man. Michaela was constantly smiling. I could feel the love… what an awesome thing to see & feel.

We started right next to Landmark Center in St. Paul and went from there. The Seventh Place Mall area made for a great spot and backdrop, right next to Park Square Theatre
